While Canada was enjoying its 132nd anniversary last Thursday, Emo likewise was having a fantastic time kicking off its three-day centennial celebrations.
People came in from all parts of Ontario, and as far away as New Mexico, Arizona, Alberta, Quebec, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota to take in the festivities.
To say Mary Curtis and the rest of the centennial planning committee were pleased with how Emo’s 100th birthday party went last week would be an understatement.
Curtis said the three-day celebration met every expectation the committee had—and then some!
Nothing unusual about the name. Average, really.
And in fact, Richards is an average guy, living in an average house in Barwick. He will be married in two weeks but at least a portion of the wedding will be paid for by his anything-but-average trade.
Richards is a taxidermist—an animal mortician so to speak.
Melanie Kozik has lived at Bear’s Pass for 10 years. She has three children at home, and her career involves selling marketing software on the Internet.
For her, a reliable phone line is a necessity.
But Kozik said she’s not getting what she’s paying for and she is very upset.
Although the district didn’t get near as much rain Kenora did over the weekend, local farmers are getting tired of the wet and cool weather conditions and hoping for things to heat up.
They’re prayers have been answered!
When members of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Morson broke ground for a new church last summer, they did not have all the money needed to complete the project.
Fortunately, the “pay as they went” motto worked itself out and the official blessing and dedication of the completed church was held Sunday.
For Clint Perreault of Couchiching, it is a day to be proud.
Perreault was one of the hundreds of people who took part in the “Treaty Days Celebration” yesterday, which also continues again today.
If you were to tell John Willis to go fly a kite, he’d probably thank you for it.
Willis and his wife, Katherine, will present Emo’s reeve and council with a kite fashioned in the shape of life-sized bald eagle during the community’s centennial celebrations next week.
Things are coming together well as Emo prepares to stage its centennial celebrations next Thursday through Saturday.
Mary Curtis, one of the organizers, said with a week to go, things are looking excellent so far.
“If the weather holds, it will be perfect,” she remarked.
